Sleeping problem

Patient : I'm having sleeping problems, I can't seem to get to sleep unless I'm really tired and to try and help myself fall asleep fast I play on my ipad, I usually lose track no time but about 4-5 hours pass and I'm really tired and want to fall asleep, but when I try I can't and I'm spending another half hour tossing and turning before I can actually fall asleep. I'm thirteen years old and I haven't spoken to my parents about this because I don't want to get in trouble for being up so late, please can I have some help?
